We arrived into Rome Ciampino airport late at night and was at the bus station trying to get the shuttle bus to the Rome city center. However, we weren’t able to take the last bus and ended up trying to take the local bus instead. We tried to get our tickets from the ticketing machines but those weren’t working so after boarding one of the bus to ask the driver, he spoke only Italian. In the end, we didn’t pay for the ride to the Rome Termini where our accommodation was located.
Booked our Trenitalia train from Rome to Naples online, departing at 735 and arriving at 845. From Napoli Centrale, went over to Napoli Garibaldi for local Circumvesuviana train to Pompeii.
